Generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen
There are many generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen products available. Manufacturers have given these generic birth control pills "brand-like" names to avoid confusion, since the generic names can be confusing. Generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen is equivalent to the brand-name version, but it may contain different inactive ingredients, which could cause problems for people with allergies.

Names of Generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen
Because the generic names of birth control pills can be confusing (the names are long, and multiple different products can have the same generic name but different strengths), manufacturers of generic birth control pills often give their versions a "brand name" to avoid confusion. These products are still generics, even though they seem like brand-name products, due to their names.
